What's This LP Worth?

Recommended Posts

Hello everybody! New member here. I picked up a Custom Shop Les Paul Custom 3 pickup in wine red last year. It's near mint. I was just wondering if anyone could give me a ballpark figure on its value. Serial is CS 9628. I called Gibson. The guy looked it up and said it appeared to be a 1999, and said it appears to have been custom ordered. Any insight would be most appreciated!

Thanks for the reply Sgt. Pepper. Good point. Some people probably wouldn't like it. I was thinking about getting some push-pull pots installed for versatility.

Beautiful guitar from a good period for Gibson.

I have a dark cherry custom with P90s.  It has a 1956-spec neck which I love.

You can get a 6-way switch for all the different pickup combinations.

Wiring might get complicated - wouldn't want to find the switch cavity has to be enlarged.

A push-pull for out-of-phase between neck and middle could get you near that Peter Green tone. 

I am in UK so can't help with price.  Would go for a lot more over here though.

Thank you so much jdgm for that link! I was doing some reading on the freeway switch, and it looks like it can be installed without any routing. Would love to get that Greeny tone. Thanks again!
